3/24 Bryan Bertino Talks "The Strangers 2":




Original writer/director of "The Strangers", talks The Strangers 2 with DreadCentral.com:

"I’m thrilled that it seems like finally now people are behind the movie that are interested in making it. I was thrilled to see it out of Relativity’s hands and into a group of producers’ hands that are actually excited about making it. It’s very crazy to think that after all of these years they’re going to make a sequel, but I liked the script that I wrote when I wrote it eight years ago.

It’s a cool story, and I think it will have an opportunity to be an exciting movie. So I was really thrilled and excited to see, after so many false starts over the years, that it was in the hands of someone who was actually interested in doing something with it; and I really like some of the movies they’ve made in the last few months.

I was saying to someone the other day that I really liked I Am a Serial Killer so I was excited to see these producers are going to be involved in the film; it was exciting for me."


Last month it was announced that the longggg talked about sequel to 2008's sleeper hit "The Strangers" is about to finally going into production.. Shooting is set to begin this summer.. Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones will produce, in association with Relativity Media. BLOOM Media will handle international sales..

The film will be directed By: Johannes Roberts (The Other Side Of The Door, 47 Meters Down), from a script By: Bryan Bertino (The Strangers, The Monster) and Ben Ketai (The Forest)..

The film will center around a family whose road trip takes a turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park and after the power goes out they decide to hunker down for the night in a borrowed trailer. Under the cover of darkness three familiar masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test their every limit.

Are you guys looking forward to The Strangers 2? I am, but just not sure how well the film will do at the box office - by the time the flick hits theaters it will be almost 10 years since the release of the original movie.. Taking a look at recent sequels to dead franchisees "Independence Day 2, Blair Witch, Bad Santa 2, Ghostbusters, RINGS, XxX) they have all under-performed or flopped, even Jason Bourne was somewhat of a box office disappointment..
